Top Rated Swiss Chard Recipes

Joanna K. Chodorowska, a personal and sports nutrition coach, says that this is her go-to recipe. She'll add a clove of garlic in the winter to boost the immune system ("usually knocks out anything I have!"), celery in the summer to hydrate, and a pear (one of fall's best ingredients) instead of an apple to change things up. "But what I have... is the base of my juicing drink," says Chodorowska. You can update this juice recipe for any season.

Red Shakshuka
Even though it's egg-centric, shakshuka is a great dish to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If serving for breakfast and you want to prep the night before, make the tomato mixture and refrigerate. When ready to serve, heat in a large skillet before layering on Swiss chard and cracking the eggs on top.Recipe from chef Einat Admony and courtesy of Handsome Brook Farms.

smoothie
There are many reasons to drink a smoothie, like as a nutritious breakfast or a healthy afternoon snack. But Mike Stevenson, head brewer at Culver Beer Company, created this recipe as his hangover cure. Fresh greens benefit from the caffeine kick of yerba mate -- if you can stand the sound of the blender in the morning.

Swiss Chard Soup
Sometimes it’s nice to just eat a simple soup that shows off the flavor of the main ingredient. No bells, no whistles, no extra spices, twists, or complicated techniques. That’s the case with this Swiss chard soup. A simple onion, carrot, celery, and garlic base reinforced with chicken stock and, of course, the chard, makes for a bright, belly-warming winter meal. Great on its own, this healthy soup is made a little more indulgent with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream, more texturally complex with chickpea croutons, and heartier with some slices of ancho-rubbed grilled turkey.

Swiss Chard and Sausage with Polenta
Swiss chard and sausage — it rolls off your tongue just as easy as it slides off the fork. This recipe is simple in nature but the sauce is made with deliberate steps (browning, deglazing with red wine, aromatics) to have a bold depth in flavor. It's the perfect bath for the Swiss chard and sausage to soak in, and the cheesy polenta is just the icing on the cake. Click here to see Swiss Chard: Not Just for Sides.

Swiss Chard Tzatziki
I've been on a Greek yogurt kick lately. I love traditional tzatziki with cucumber but wanted to try something a little different. The Swiss chard delivers a slightly different texture (almost like spinach dip) and some added health benefits. Click here to see Swiss Chard: Not Just for Sides.

swiss chard gratin
Slightly bitter in taste and full of texture, Swiss chard is versatile and lends itself to surprising combinations...As a substitute for spinach [in gratin], the chard adds a tartness and texture that spinach lacks. The ribs are very flavorful and hold their shape in soups, sautes and gratins. -- Peter KempThis recipe by Peter Kemp originally appeared in The Chicago Tribune.

Baon and Swiss Chard Ravioli
Bacon makes everything better, right? Definitely the case with these creamy, satisfying ravioli. The bacon adds a deliciously smoky taste to the earthy swiss chard and rich ricotta in the filling. Pair these with your favorite tomato sauce or just a light drizzle of olive oil. This pasta is best served fresh out of the pot, so don't drop them in the water until you're ready to eat.  Click here to see the Bacon: It's What's for Dinner story.

Swiss Chard and Shiitake Mushroom Risotto
True, anything with a cup of grated Grana Padano is going to taste good. But, to me, at least, that's a great excuse to indulge in some risotto, and this risotto does indeed have a cup of grated Grana in it. That's not all that's in it, though — delicate shiitake mushrooms and wilted Swiss chard are in the mix as well, and a topping of crisp-tender chopped chard stems lend a little crunch and a ton of visual appeal. After all, you eat with your eyes, too. Click here to see Swiss Chard: Not Just for Sides.

Bulgur Risotto with Swiss Chard
Cooking grains in a risotto style may seem fairly unhealthy because the texture is so creamy and luxurious. However, with the exception of a tablespoon and a half of butter, this risotto is cream-free. The texture comes from the starch of the grains, which get released slowly over time and create a self-saucing effect.
